Certificate in Memoir Writing.

Since 2016, we have offered this program to our members and dozens of people have earned their certificate and gone on to publish their memoirs! Members may earn this certificate by taking the following series of workshops. Ideally these workshops would be taken in order, though it is not necessary they be taken successively. All workshops are only offered once a year and must be completed within a three-year period in order to earn the certificate.

 

Note: If you sign up for the full certificate and do not plan to take the courses in sequence for the year, please contact us to ensure that a course credit is applied to your account. You will have three years to use the credit and complete the program.

Certificate Discount

If you buy all five of the workshops in the certificate separately, the total cost amounts to $1,296. If you purchase all five of them as a package, you will receive a 20% discount and will only pay a total of $1,036. This discount is only good for members. 

 

Please note that if you enroll in the full certificate, you will automatically receive the individual course links throughout the year. If you do not plan to take all courses within the year, please contact us to ensure that a course credit is applied to your account.
